January 22-23, 2024 — 8.3 Release Notes¶
The release has completed.
For differences between the in-advance and final versions of these release notes, see Release Notes Change Log.
Network rules — General Availability¶
With this release, we are pleased to announce the general availability of network rules, which group related network identifiers into logical units. When a Snowflake feature needs to restrict network traffic based on the origin or destination of a request, it can allow or block a network rule that contains the identifiers that should be permitted or denied.
Network rules make possible the following features:
Enhanced network security using network policies. All new network policies should use network rules.
This release includes a new Snowsight page for network policies, which includes the ability to manage the lifecycle of a network rule. Using SQL to work with network rules is generally available, but this new Snowsight page is a Preview feature.
Enhanced network security — General Availability¶
With this release, we are pleased to announce the general availability of enhanced security when using network policies to restrict access to Snowflake. When combined with network rules, network policies can now restrict access based on the identifier of an AWS S3 endpoint or Azure private endpoint.
